it was obama's katrina, which it is. the jobs report is up. we will check in with karl rove and look at predictions from others as the outcome of tuesday is now pretty much at hand. joining me with reaction to all of this, radio talk show host willie billy cunningham. his radio show is heard nationally across the country on sunday nights. sir, welcome back. ju you are a great american. >> sean hannity, how are you? >> sean: after the photo op,. billy cunningham where does president obama fly? to vegas. meanwhile, it it is beginning to freeze in the northeast. people don't have heat, electricity. the gas stations that are open people are waiting six hours or long are to be able to get gas. he comes to town. he hugs chris christie, photo op and then heads off to vegas. your reaction? >> i would say a few things. number one, i think this is obama's katrina in which he is showing a complete lack of compassion. i can recall a speech he gave in denver in front of 70,000 fans in which he said if you elect me the winds will stop blowing and the oceans will not rise. what happened to the anoi
. >> eric: may i bring -- >> bob -- holdon. >> kimberly: by the way, what happened to bush and katrina? did they do the same thing? it's okay there, but not here. being politically expedient again? >> bob: there are 77 people dead. romney and his people talk about how obama was not prepared. >> greg: you talk about climate change. >> eric: let me do this. i'll bring this back to why i put the two things in the same segment, bob. here is why. we gave him $1 trillion. the administration $1 trillion to beef up the infrastructure. they spent $1 trillion making the grid. burying the grid underground so that every time it's 50-mile-per-hour wind we don't have half the country losing power. that would have been a good use of stimulus money. better use. >> bob: bury new jersey under the ground in four years? >> eric: let me put it this way. $1 trillion closer to getting it done. what did we get with the money we spent? >> kimberly: nothing. >> bob: republicans have to think of something besides sandy to make a case in the final four days. >> greg: that is the point. >> dana: romney did not. what he
't know what he shot about. he hot his mouth about katrina and we have seen record low levels. andrew cuomo linked climate change to sandy yesterday. >> steve: a county plans to move forward with a gun tax. under the plan will be a $25 tax on the fire arms and a plan to tax bullets. but the board dropped that because it would be more than the costs of ammunition. >> giant tiger shark. maria, a black belt was swimming in maui. and the shark confronted her and she gave it a best punch in the nose. she got more than a hundred stitchos her hand and thigh. >> steve: that's what you are supposed to do. >> gretchen: a woman was told her bible shirt was offensive. they made her cover tup with a jacket. they say it violates election laws and the attorney said he wants an apology or there will be a lawsuit. >> steve: is the on the ballot there? >> that shirt is permissible. keep the shirt on. >> steve: 20 minutes before the top of the hour. navy seals outraged over what happened in benghazi posted this on facebook. but facebook took it down. doesn't that vialate people's use of free speech. the
, some are now drawing comparisons between this superstorm and katrina. so just how do they measure up? cnn meteorologist severe weather expert chad myers is taking a closer look. he's joining us now. how do they measure up, chad? >> well, first of all, the storm surge with katrina was enormous. almost three times more of a wave or of a surge with katrina as bay st. louis was about 28 feet. manhattan island, downtown, the battery, had about 9.5 feet. haven't seen too many numbers higher than that. 9.5 feet moving into the city comparing to moving into the bay, obviously there's a town there and all the way do biloxi, it's the population density in new york city that is going to -- and in new jersey and connecticut, that is going to put this way up in the record books. katrina, $145 billion in damage. andrew, this is cost for adjusted inflation $43.5 billion. and looks like somewhere sandy will fall somewhere between katrina and into andrew. so probably number two on the scale for dollar damage. now, when it comes to deaths, it's disturbing, wolf, to see and hear how quickly the fatalit
that has gone back and forth from louisiana, katrina, and new york for 9/11 and back. now back again the brotherhood of firefighters that is straight ahead. >> those are two cities that share tragedy, have tragedy in common. katrina down there. 9/11 up here. now another one with sandy. so that bond -- that fire truck certainly represents that. >>> also, we'll lighten the mood a little bit in "the skinny," she says, maybe not too much. she is going to be fine. talking about brooke burke from abc's "dancing with the stars," when the word "cancer" is involved, we'll have to send her our very best thoughts and warm wishes. details of her condition. she is going to be okay the important thing. stay tuned for details coming up on that in "the skinny". >> what her doctors are telling her. our prayers and thoughts go out to her and her family. first, victims and relatives of those who died were in the courtroom as a judge reaffirmed that jared loughner would never again be a free man. >> as part of a plea deal, loughner was sentenced to seven consecutive life terms plus 140 years. abc's matt
that katrina because they spent it on massage parlors and everything you can think of in addition to what was necessary. >> jennifer: that's iowa tea party congressman and crazytown resident steve king. he's one of 11 congressional members who days after hurricane katrina voted against $51.8 billion in relief spending in louisiana and mississippi. and now, just days after hurricane sandy he obviously has not changed his tune. and it is that kind of radical radical/insane thinking that's gotten him into his tightest re-election race yet. the latest ppp poll has him running three points ahead of his democratic opponent, christie vilsack. 48% to 45% in iowa. congressman king is not alone. several of his fellow representatives from tea party crazytown are in the political fights of their lives as well. begin with minnesota congresswoman michele bachmann. she's off the charts in name recognition. she raised $18 million more than her democratic opponent jim graves. her district has an 8% republican registration edge but still sh
. some people calling it their katrina in a very unhappy way, of course, in part because it's cold. it's a cold katrina. and people are without heat and electricity. seats very tough. how does it play politically? we'll know in retrospect, i think like everything else, in this race. it is not known at this point how it will play. you can argue that the president looked commanding and like a leader when he came up to new jersey. you could also argue that things are starting to look a little tough in some of the neighborhood neighborhoods in new york and jersey, and so that might work against him. it's hard to say, but one thing i think is probably clearly true and that is the fact of the storm took the subject matter of mitt romney's closing statements, the end of his campaign, his big arguments sort of snuffed that out a little bit for a few days. inevitably, as we all talked about the storm. we weren't talking about the economy. we weren't doing all of that stuff. so in some way, that may have hurt him. and yet, at the same time, that all that was happening, in westchester, ohio, he w
for president bush was of him hugging someone after a natural disaster. you know, the images of katrina, biggest single thing beyond the war in iraq that undermined confidence in president bush's leadership. you cannot get those images out of your head as you watch this stuff. >> except, you know what, katty kay? there is a certain appeal that i think is coming as a relief to people who are tired, who are tired of the vitriol, of the stupidity. and a politician who can work with the other side, isn't that something that in this new age of politics that's appealing? >> it's huge. and i think it's probably almost the overriding priority of whoever gets elected next tuesday is to be able to make this country governable again. and to be able to do that by bringing about a certain amount of cooperation on the things america needs to do between republicans and democrats. we saw it yesterday between chris christie and brearack oba. and it's going to be very interesting to watch today as the campaign trail resumes, whether there's a different tone. i wouldn't be surprised -- we've heard the president us
and robust enough to respond to three nuclear events in the same day. it is clear from hurricane katrina and hurricane sandy this is a passing slow incompetent bureaucracy utterly overwhelmed it in new orleans. what it does to president obama we as a nation need to demand a very, very dramatically over hauled department. as to obama's situation i think he probably peaked about three hours after chris christie you go hugged him. he looked bipartisan looked like the commander-in-chief. he was doing the president's job not the candidate's job. it is accelerated by this absurd comment about the revenge. i am sure the president will take it back as he could. it is so jarringly destructive and i think it sent such a bad signal to most americans about how small minded and mean spirited president obama was capable at times. >> i was stunned at the revenge comment. mitt romney hit the right cone said no i am running for the american people. let me run this again. i want to run them side by side. it is so glaring the difference. you can see in their closing arguments here the president is on the
city. however if you go back seven years to hurricane katrina the news then about that storm was how president bush and fema and michael brown and everybody failed. you never heard about mayor nagan and governor belong could he. now the situation is reversed and it's bloomberg taking the blame for the storm and not doing better for it as opposed to president obama. if this were bush right now you'd be seeing a split screen of bush campaigning, and then people being miserable in their wrecked houses back home in queens. jon: what about that? we heard from david lee miller earlier today, a hispanic woman getting up there in years complaining how absolutely miserable it is where she's live. why should that not be president obama's fault as it was president bush's fault? >> katrina was a much larger national issue than with all due respect to queens. jon: why? >> because katrina was -- the magnitude of katrina in terms of what it represented nationally was not specific to a neighborhood in new york. overall the reaction to sandy has been -- jon: so the president is not -- i mean he's the
reasonna you think they would -- katrina you think they would wake up, but no, it will not clear up until we do declare bankruptcy, that money comes from poor people, if you borrow it, they are indebted, if you don't borrow you print it, they get a business cycle, and they end up without their job, and they think it is for free, wake up and see, every time government spends money it is a cost and a tax, comes back and hits middle class more than anyone else, esspecially low income middle class who try to survive, they suffer the most from all of these programs even with a pretense they will take care of us forever. neil: and you always look cruel if you oppose it but track record is such, like telethons, their heart is in the right place but if haiti got a fraction of the money that was pledged after earthquakes and disaster its would look like atlantis right now. >> that is right, same thing over again, you know where that will take us. neil: we have to think through this, folks. ron paul always a please oar sir, thank you. >> swing state mayors are duking it on the ground, a republican
, was about the vote on hurricane katrina. there will be all kinds of wasted funds. it is a principled vote and it will be easy to vote on. king was right -- this is the sioux city's response. the balance of that is false. i have had better votes since then. voting against obamacare, voting against cap and trade, dodd-frank, those were better votes, but the rest of those allegations are false. >> he is one of 11 congressmen who took a vote against hurricane katrina relief. i think that everything i said in that ad is true. we have researched all of it. these are congressman king's own words. >> and he is using one to define mrs. vilsack. >> what does it mean if mrs. vilsack calls for tax increases? she is for increasing taxes on job creators and in this stagnant economy, christie vilsack will effect -- hurt job creation. on doesn't have a clue jobs. >> mr. king, you've seen the ad. >> that's the first time i've seen that, but am happy to respond. mrs. vilsack wants the tax increase to kick in on millionares, and many of them are job creators and small businesspeople. >> mrs. vilsack, you've
have. what is your problem with that, katrina? >> let's have a chatty script, interactive, not robotic script. i respect the idea of going door-to-door. i respect the feedback. here is a radical idea. keep those field offices in those towns and communities after the election. you want a real feedback -- >> it does not translate into policy. >> there is a difference. i think you said this during the break, chris. there's a difference between marketing and democracy. that line is getting blurred. we need to watch out for that. i respect the door-to-door, the volunteers. i want the feedback loops to go back. the first step is voting on election day and what follows is building out of politics. >> let's disaggregate the two questions. there's a question about the effectiveness of winning elections. there's not a lot of question about it to the extent you believe in controlled experiments and so forth. i'm looking at you guys over there. but, then there's a broader kind of moral political theoretical question about democratic theory, what are the implications for a democratic mandate you ma
was the head of fema when katrina struck, and he criticized the president for being too quick to respond to this tragedy. i say bring it on. more criticism like that. >> and he wasn't afraid to hammer the romney campaign over their continued use of the completely misleading jeep ad, in the way that only bill clinton can do. >> when i was a kid and i got caught with my hand in a cookie jar, my face got red and i took my hand out of the cookie jar. this guy gets caught, he digs down and gets some more cookies. they actually increased the ad buy on an ad they knew was false because they think you're dumb. i think you're smart and i think barack obama will be the next president. >> "mork times" blog shows president obama ahead by less than 1 point. president clinton's appeal with white certain voters could be the final push the president needs in the state of virginia. let's bring in joy reid. i want to say i've never seen a former president be so effective. i think a lot of people are going to be able to point to bill clinton and say this is one of the major reasons why president obama was
voiced came from michael brown who was the head of fema when katrina struck. and he criticized the president for being too quick to respond to his tragedy. i say bring it on. >> and he wasn't afraid to hammer the romney campaign over their continued use of the completely misleading jeep ad in the way that only bill clinton can do. >> when i was a kid and i caught caught with my hand in the cookie jar, i sort of shrugged my shoulders, my face got red and i took my hand out of the cookie char. this guy gets caught with his hand in the cookie jar, he digs down and gets more cookies. i actually increased the ad on an ad they knew was false because they think you're dumb. i think you're smart. and i think barack obama will be the next president. >> new york times 538 blogs shows president obama added virginia by less than one point. pthd clinton's appeal with white, southern voters could be the final push the president needs in the state of virginia. let's bring in the managing editor. i've never seen a former president be so effective. i don't know how i'll be able to point to bill
play a positive role in our lives. one of the reasons katrina was such a big scandal is for years, particularly under clinton, who really did a good job of reforming fema. we said, yeah, this is one of the things the federal government does well. and when states get into trouble like this, yes, they can do things for themselves and they do a lot of stuff for themselves. but they've got to have the fed. i think right now, he has no choice but to say, well, whatever i said before, i'm going to keep fema. >> e.j. dionne, are we going to be lacking on this campaign, if romney loses, saying, it was the 47% tsunami. that it really was that that set the table for a lot of other problems that he just couldn't overcome throughout this campaign? >> well, i think that the -- whatever momentum romney had from the first debate stopped. and my reading of the polls is the last week had already been going at least slightly in obama's direction. and at least on the first couple of days, from the reaction to what the president did, from the difficulties romney has, this appears to be helping obama
the national feeling here. when katrina happened, i got a call the day after from haley barbour, the republican governor from mississippi, who, of course, is a friend of mine. and he said, i need guardsmen. can you send me guardsmen? pennsylvania had, you know, no nickel on that dime. we're thousands -- hundreds of miles away from the gulf, but we have 20,000 guardsmen, and i activated 2,100 and sent them down to mississippi and to louisiana, and the interesting thing, chris, is i got tons of letters citizens of those states thanking me, but i also got letters from my own guardsmen, who said it was the best thing they've done since they've been in the national guard, to help americans from another area of the country who are suffering. and that's the spirit that takes over, and it's, as you said, what makes us a special place. >> well, that's why people like you and they like haley barbour, thank you, governor rendell, and thank you, david corn. you never get to be a governor, you don't get to know what that's like. and for the latest on the devastation on the jersey shore, we turn to ron allen
to enter the ports up here. recall this was a big deal during katrina. the jones act requires all vessels carrying products between u.s. ports to fly under the u.s. flag, be built in the u.s., and be crude mostly be u.s. citizens the fact they're waiving that will hopefully expedite more fuel in here. what are they doing on the ground? trying to get the power to restored to gas stations that don't have power. you can't pump gas if you don't have power. power is restored to the terminals to get the fuel, of course, on to the trucks. that's a priority. now, there are trucks moving and there is gas here. the issue are those other two issues really kind of slowing things down and then by the way, we still have some of these huge massive refineries taken off-line trying to get them up and running but that could be a while as well. this part of the country consumes more oil, more gas, than any ear part of the country on a daily basis. it drinks it. they have goat this stuff moving not only to power cars but generators because of people, people don't have any electricity. they need generators to
. in 2005, think back to hurricane katrina. in 2001, president bush appointed joseph, the chief of staff in texas and the 2000 campaign manager, but no emergency management experience. under president bush, the number of political appointees went from 27-38. he brought in michael brown, his college roommate. now in 2003, michael brown took over fema. he also had no previous emergency experience, the u.s. commission of the international an arabian horse association which was his qualification. hurricane katrina hits new orleans, brown took control of the relief effort, but it was a disaster both literally and figuratively. you may remember president bush said, you're doing a heck of a job. it became clear that he could not handle it, and he was replaced by the coast guard, a career professional that handle the and a good job. of course, the katrina disaster was not all brown's fault. the appointment is an illustration of the problem, an increasing number of appointees, the lack of emergency management experience, layers of political appointees over career professionals, they thought it wa
those folks out. again, that takes me back to the katrina days. if this plan goes through with the fema trailers, need for temporary housing, there was a big situation down in louisiana where they found out months after the storm that there was a formaldehyde contamination problem inside those fema trailers. so make sure as they segue into temporary housing, they take precautions and ask about what they're getting because a lot of problems and some lawsuits in new orleans after katrina. >> you heard the dilemma some of the folks are in. they've been asked to evacuate, leave, maybe go to a shelter, dry, dry land, but they don't want to leave their homes because of looting. >> yeah, people want to protect their property. can't tell somebody they can't. so, now to some lighter moments from our storm coverage. we know about the bromance between new jersey governor chris christie and president obama. there is word that christie found closure with a target of his unrequited love. >> the one, the only bruce springsteen. christie said yesterday he got a hug from the rock star at a recent benefi
did hurricane katrina. >>> next door in new jersey, which suffered $30 billion in losses, governor chris christie, just announce thad he's running for re-election. christie's won praise and new found popularity with his handling of hurricane sandy. he says he is going to seek another term next year. so he can continue leading the state through the long recovery. and he, won back in 2009 by 86,000 votes. so far no democratic challenger has put their name in the hat, but we're hearing rumbles of potentially newark mayor cory booker. >>> another popular politician who has kind of gained some voice on the national stage. should be interesting. i wonder how two things will impact him in terms of his standing within the gop. number one, of course, the famous scene of christie and the president during hurricane sandy when he was very praiseworthy, you know, of the president, the speech at the convention, republican convention where he kind of talked, according to critics, talked a lot more about himself than governor romney. the stat was 17 minutes into the speech before he said the name
